The Millennium Centre was acquired by the Parish Council under the planning obligations imposed on J Sainsbury plc during the development of the OSU site. The Centre comprises a main hall and three smaller rooms. It provides an accessible local venue for community events, pantomime, markets, cinema, art exhibitions, and a wide variety of clubs and activities. It also hosts meetings of the Parish Council.
The Centre was built on a disused OSU site which was developed by the Royal Canadian Engineers in 1944. The site was occupied by the Royal Army Ordnance Corp from 1968 until approximately 1997 when it was sold to Sainsbury’s. The Millennium Centre was built for the community in 1998, opening its doors for the first time in March 1999 for the Annual Community Meeting.
The Centre is available for hire and details can be found on the dedicated website https://liphookmc.co.uk.
The Village Green covers an area of 4 acres and was acquired by the Parish Council under the planning obligations imposed on J Sainsbury plc during the development of the OSU site. This open area is surrounded by trees and is located alongside the Liphook Millennium Centre.
